I have a basic plot of a story that I wanted to write, which I eventually got around to doing through NaNo...however, the story that I wrote wildly veered from what I meant to have happen via the plot. Now, the story I have written is far from done, but I'd like advice on a couple things. First, how can I write a plot that the story doesn't seem to run away from? Am I trying to hard to conform to a certain idea or storyline? I feel like that might be a possible issue. The second is, and this is slightly worse, but how exactly do you write a good plot? I've seen all the stuff like "starting" and "plateauing" and "climax" and stuff, but that's all to...analytical for me, I suppose. I want to know how to write a 'creative' plot, not something structured. I hope this is detailed enough to explain my woes; since they do not pertain to any one story I have written(I have a few), but to all of them, I decided not to include details to keep it simple. If details should be included, please tell me so I can do such. Thanks!
